Testimonials

This was truly the trip of a lifetime…In New Zealand, all six of us caught trout, went horse riding, helicoptering, jet boating…all the while being cared for by the most wonderful people ever.
~ P.F., Gwynedd Valley, PA

Peru was absolutely outstanding. Our guide gave me the encouragement and help I needed in climbing to the very top of Huayna Picchu – an accomplishment of which I will always be thankful!! 
~ P.C., Smyrna, GA

We had a wonderful time in Asia!!! Highlights in Indonesia were the airplane view of the volcanoes on Java, walking each level of Borobudur by ourselves with no one else around, the trek to Selogriyo and its breathtaking terraced rice fields…
~ T.T., New York, NY
